Bonfire Brewing and Optimum Events announced nine bands will make up the fourth-annual Bonfire Block Party held Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2 in downtown Eagle, including headliners Galactic and The Record Company. Five opening and support acts and two second-stage bands round out the two-day street party lineup. The music schedule will be announced on May 1. Limited Early Bird tickets for the Block Party are still available and feature Two-Day Sili Packages and Two-Day Wristbands. A two-day VIP Experience is also on sale.
The Record Company and Galactic headline an all-star lineup that includes Sam Bush, Con Brio, Nicki Bluhm, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Assembly of Dust on the Broadway Mainstage. Hardscrabble and Duey & The Decibles round out the Second Street Bonfire Stage. Music gets underway on Friday, June 1 at 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 2 at 2:30 p.m.
“We pulled out all the stops for this year’s musical lineup,” says Ted Wenninger of Optimum Events, organizers of the Bonfire Block Party. “Over the years we’ve seen how hungry the valley is to get out and celebrate the beginning of summer the first week of June, and we know this year’s music won’t disappoint.” Wenninger continued, “In addition to new talent, we’re so happy to welcome back Block Party vets, Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Sam Bush who brought down the house at the 2017 Party.”
Tickets to the 2018 Bonfire Block Party are available at www.bonfireblockparty.com. A portion of all Block Party proceeds benefit Eagle County nonprofit The Cycle Effect, who will be operating a bike valet during the event.
